Bill O’Reilly on ‘A Growing Split’ in News Coverage

Bill O’Reilly started his program last evening with his take on Howard Kurtz, CBS’ Bob Schieffer, and Sunday’s edition of “Reliable Sources,” using their conversation as a jumping off point to criticize the “mainstream media.”

“Apparently there’s a growing split about how the news is covered in this country,” O’Reilly said. “The old-guard mainstream media makes decisions based on ideology, race, and elitism. The new media, of which Fox News is a part, covers what Americans believe is important to them.

O’Reilly also believes there’s a “changing of the guard as far as news flow in the USA.” Video below…

In the follow-up segment, O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg continued the discussion, criticizing Kurtz, CNN, and some network anchors. Watch it after the jump.
